~BUTTERSCOTCH AQUA OPAL~
All of these BUTTERFLY & BERRY Aqua Opal items made for Gary Levi’s, LEVAY GLASS by Fenton are hard to find. This is the Handled Basket made from the Tumbler and is #77/96. You can see the signature, date and number on the base! These Levay Butterfly & Berry pieces are highly collectible to say the least!
The Opal is nice & thick at the top and goes about 1/4 of the way down; then the iridescent shows up and this is full of colors (Iridescence is better than my photos show).
In addition to the applied handle, the Aqua colored glass which is only discernible through a thin part of the base as shown. Fenton 8 oval on the base. Great limited piece! It’s a beauty!
Note: The applied Aqua Glass handle has a manufacturing issue (in the making) where the glass joins the tumbler on one side…it was made this way.
